"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Daniel 1

The book of Daniel hits American sensitivities like another dystopian fiction or apocalyptic TV show. We don’t know what to do with Daniel so for the most part we get it wrong or simply ignore the book altogether. We either look at Daniel as a heroic man whose righteousness should inspire us to keep the faith, or as a road-map to the end times that can, through careful study, tell us the day and hour of Christ’s return. Both of these kinds of readings of the book of Daniel are missing the bigger picture – that God is the hero of this story, and he is in the midst of his unrelenting plan to rescue his people from their sin and its consequences. Join us as we explore God’s love in a broken world – God’s redemption for a wayward people – and God’s timing in the cross of reconciling all things back to himself.
